Closures and restrictions
There are occasions when a public right of way may need to be temporarily closed for a period, for example to allow restoration works, or for reasons of public safety. These temporary closures are advertised in the local press covering the area of the closure and also on site. The period of closure and the alternative routes which are currently in force are indicated on the site notices and maps which can be accessed by following the links below.
When public rights of way are found to be in a condition which is dangerous for the public, an emergency closure may be put into operation immediately on that section of route for a maximum of 21 days either to enable it to be put back into repair, or to make a temporary closure for a longer period. These closures are advertised on site. The period of closure and the alternative routes which are currently in force are indicated on the site notices and maps which can be accessed by following the links below.
